Scanning Special!

Precision is offering an RFF special on our Ultra Hi Res scanning service.

35mm scans are 26 megapixel jpgs. It's $11.99/roll for scanning, and the developing (either C41 or E6) is free...a savings of $4/roll for C41 and $6/roll for E6. This equates to only 33 cents per frame for a 36 exposure roll of 35mm.

This is a significant savings over other labs such as NCPS. We use the same equipment and the scan quality is fantastic, and can only be surpassed by expensive high-end drum scanners.

We can scan all the way up to 6x9.

Typical turn around time is 2 weeks for domestic orders.

Order form is here.

Best contacts for questions and concerns on this particular service are Rene Hernandez at [email protected] and Cathleen Menke at [email protected].

I'm an Austinite and have done business with PCV for some time now.

I've have film developed and scanned there (particularly 120 rolls of Portra) and the results have been terrific. This was at their "regular" price.

This is good deal. Too bad I'm not using film right now.

A couple of samples...these are directly off the CD, as scanned; the only change was to resize to 1024 pixels wide; no sharpening or other changes.

85/2.8 Zeiss Sonnar, Portra 160VC (35mm)



80/2 Zeiss Planar, Contax 645, Portra 160VC (6x4.5)

Great deal, indeed. Is this a temporary thing? If so, when will it end?

Will you do scans at this price for Kodacrome slides that were developed at Dwayne's?

Thanks.

I think, they mean scanning an uncut roll of slide film or negative film.

1. Does this offer only apply to customers who are US residents? I'm in Toronto, Canada and would consider this service depending on the cost of shipping.

2. If you accept international orders/shipments - do you accept payment via paypal?


Thanks.

Thanks for this.

For C41, what is your default treatment for the film after development & scanning, leaving it uncut or do you cut & sleeve?

We can scan mounted slides, yes, although it's quite a bit more expensive: http://www.precision-camera.com/index.php/scanning

Anyone who has not sent Kodachrome to Dwayne's yet should have them develop and return the film uncut...

We can leave it uncut, or cut and sleeve, your choice.

If the film is left uncut, it has to be rolled up and can't be shipped flat, so it costs a little more in postage.

When you consider the last roll of E-6 I had done in Brisbane at a well known pro lab cost me $20.00 and that was just to develop it and hand the uncut roll back to me in a sleeve ... for almost the same price I could have sent it to the US for processing and scanning and probably return post!

From memory that particular lab wanted another twenty dollars to scan the roll!

Beer, pizza and wine are very cheap in this country ... not photography though!

Just curious, would this deal pertain to 1/2 frame images (from a Pen) if I had Dwaynes not cut the Kxx roll?

Your price is a bit more than Dwayne's' but the scans are much higher resolution, so I will be giving this a try.
This is good timing as well: I've been wanting an alternative to Dwayne's for a while and the other options I've seen are all much more $. Your price is one I can live with.

One question: is there "viewing software" on the CDs? Not a deal breaker but I would be very happy to just have the jpeg files as I already have software on my computer to view/import the images.
Thanks,
Rob

Thumbs up Great Offer!

Thanks for extending this to RFF members.

I'll be sending in a few rolls.

If the quality is as good as you say, and the turnaround time is decent, I'll be diverting my films to you.

1) is there an extra charge for push/pull processing on e6?

2) I'm on a trip shooting several rolls of 120 a day. I will send you some when I return home in 2 weeks.

Yes, we can push/pull E6. I think it's $2.50. I don't know if that is per roll, I will check...

Thanks.

A super-nerdy follow-up question: what sleeves do you use for 35mm? I've standardized on the Printfile version that holds 7 strips of 6 frames. It's not a problem to include my own sleeves when I send film in, but good to know ahead of time if it's necessary.

Interested to know this too. I don't really care about the sleeves themselves, but want my film cut in strips of 6.

Also interested to know if you'll scan Kodachrome rolls.

Anyway, I'll probably try you guys out. My last couple batches of film went to NCPS, with whom I've been happy, but it's always good to see someone reach out to us. Too bad I don't shoot that much color.

We can scan black and white, although the digital ICE is not compatible.

Also, the free developing is for E6 or C41, not B&W.

Film is cut in strips of 4 (the default) but you can special request to be cut in strips of five or six.
